LIFE + STYLE: Bolt’s ‘Insane’ hot sauces hit the Aussie market + PR woman Naomi Garrick launches first book + How Elaine Thompson got motivated

SOME LIKE IT HOT: Usain Bolt wants to jazz up your meals and spice up your tastebuds! Known for his dazzling exploits on the track, the 31-year-old superstar is now making major moves in business, particularly the food industry. Bolt, whose Tracks & Records restaurant chain is spreading islandwide, now has a line of hot sauces generating buzz on the market in Australia. Introducing Usain’s Insane Hot Sauces, which emerged from a fruitful collaboration with Austchilli and supermarket chain, Coles, who were beyond excited to add some Caribbean flavour to their product empire. “We started working on this late last year and within a few months it was ready to go,” dishes Austchilli director Trent de Paoli. “We are dynamic and fast just like Usain.” For his part, Bolt says it was high time the Aussies experienced what they’d been missing out on. “I realized that Caribbean food was not readily available outside places like the USA and the UK,” Bolt told Courier Mail, “and I wanted to bring these special flavours to Australia.” Inspired by a Bolt family recipe, the sauces come in three vibrant flavours: original Jamaican spice, pineapple and Jamaican spice and mango and three chilli.

> Last Wednesday, as the Kingston Book Festival slipped into high gear, public relations pro, certified it girl and first-time author Naomi Garrick (looking lovely in the colour purple) hosted a roomful of sisters, girlfriends and other book lovers for the launch of PR Chick’s Mini Guide: 8 Steps to Building Your Personal Brand, a step-by-step do-it-yourself handbook. (Good looking out, Naomi!) The Spanish Court Hotel-hosted ’do drew appearances by Tanya Lee, Carlette DeLeon, Terri-Karelle Reid, Patrice White, Keneea Linton-George, Catherine Goodall, NeahLis McIntosh, the Martin sisters, among several others. 

> Elaine Thompson knows she’s been changed. Amazing what a little self-motivation can do. “Before I started to focus on my athletics career I was not motivated. Lack of motivation was a big challenge for me in achieving my goals, but that’s no more,” the sprint phenom and Flair 25 Distinguished Women of Substance honoree confides. “[Now] I have many motivations. My primary motivation right now is to train hard and achieve the desired results.”
